This keeps from damaging the float when the electric pump is first turned on and the bowl would be otherwise empty. If after checking for leaks none are found you can then start the car and make adjustments. It's best to have a friend there with you to help watch and also have the proper fire extinquisher on hand.
Thanks BG. Only problem here is that I haven't started the motor yet, nor is it in the car either. Is there a way to check for leaks without putting any fuel in it yet? Is calculating pressure bleed-off an accurate way of checking for leaks? I was thinking I could cap off the end of the hose with something, turn the pump on, read the pressure and see how long it takes for pressure to bleed out. Is this feasible?
